Associate Scientist with Tenure
Geology & Geophysics Department

Anne Cohen said she has been interested in marine calcification for as long as she can remember. Growing up in coastal South Africa, she spent much time collecting mollusc shells, which were the subject of her Ph.D. thesis at the University of Cape Town. She came to Woods Hole Oceaongraphic Insitution for postdoctoral research, where she became interested in corals and coral reefs. Studies of coral skeletal growth have become more sophisticated, and Cohen now uses nanoscale technologies to study how corals make crystals and to analyze their crystal composition. She has scuba dived on reefs around the world and loves to travel with her husband and young daughter.
